BTS' 'Dynamite' Dominates Billboard Global Charts, Fleetwood Mac's 'Dreams' Thunders to Top 10

The two new tallies rank songs based on streaming and sales data from more than 200 territories.

BTS' "Dynamite" returns to No. 1 on both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts.

Plus, Fleetwood Mac's 1977 classic "Dreams" bounds from No. 20 to No. 10 on the Global 200, sparked by its TikTok-fueled revival.

The two charts (the latest of which are dated Oct. 24) premiered last month and rank songs based on streaming and sales activity culled from more than 200 territories around the world, as compiled by Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The Billboard Global 200 is inclusive of worldwide data and the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart comprises data from territories excluding the U.S.

Chart rankings are based on a weighted formula incorporating official-only streams on both subscription and ad-supported tiers of audio and video music services, as well as download sales, the latter of which reflect purchases from full-service digital music retailers from around the world, with sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites excluded from the charts' calculations.

'Dynamite' Tops Billboard Global 200, 'Dreams' No. 10

"Dynamite," by South Korea's BTS, rebounds 3-1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart for a second total week on top, after it first led the Oct. 3-dated list. The track reigns with 73.8 million streams (down 9% from a week earlier), the week's top total, and 20,000 downloads sold (down 21%) globally in the week ending Oct. 15.

24kGoldn's "Mood," featuring iann dior, hits a new Global 200 high, rising 5-2; Cardi B's "WAP," featuring Megan Thee Stallion, pushes 4-3, after three weeks at No. 1; Internet Money and Gunna's "Lemonade," featuring Don Toliver and NAV, returns to its best rank, climbing 6-4; and Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo's "Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)" falls to No. 1 a week after it surged from No. 8 to No. 1 aided by two new BTS remixes. (With activity for the BTS versions not outperforming those by Jawsh 685/Derulo in the latest tracking week, BTS is now not listed as a billed act on the song on either global chart; for historical purposes, all three acts retain credit for the song's week at No. 1 on the Global 200.)

Elsewhere in the Global 200's top 10, Fleetwood Mac's 1977 smash "Dreams" vaults 20-10, with 27.3 million streams (up 36%) and 33,000 downloads sold (up 20%) globally. The classic, which was the top-selling song worldwide in the tracking week, is benefiting from the viral TikTok video in which Idahoan Nathan Apodaca rides his longboard while drinking a bottle of Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry juice, backed by the Stevie Nicks-penned song; the band's Mick Fleetwood and Nicks have since created their own tribute clips.

'Dynamite' Back Atop Billboard Global 200 Excl. U.S. Chart

BTS' "Dynamite" lifts 2-1 on the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. chart for a fourth collective week at the summit, with 62.3 million streams (down 9% from a week earlier) and 12,000 global downloads sold (down 16%) in territories outside the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 15.

Since the Global 200 and Global Excl. U.S. charts originated with the tallies dated Sept. 19, "Dynamite" is the only song to have topped them simultaneously, this week and first on the Oct. 3-dated surveys.

24kGoldn's "Mood," revisits its No. 2 Global Excl. U.S. best, rising from No. 4; Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo's "Savage Love" holds at its No. 3 high; Maluma's former one-week No. 1 "Hawái" ascends 5-4; and BLACKPINK's "Lovesick Girls," drops to No. 5 a week after launching at No. 1.

The Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts (dated Oct. 24) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 20). For both charts, the top 100 titles are available to all readers on Billboard.com, while the complete 200-title rankings are visible on Billboard Pro, Billboard's subscription-based service.
